Athletics: Based on my observations of the athletics, they are very supportive of each other on campus.

Overall Experience: Sacramento State is filled with supportive people. That's what I love most about Sac State. During midterms and finals, faculties, parents, and students always come by the AIRC where it's open 24/7 for students to study and give out snacks to the students. Along with the snacks are motivated notes such as "You're almost done with finals. Keep it up" etc. Furthermore, Sacramento State is very diverse, and the people there are very supportive towards multicultural. Sac state have became my home as an undergraduate and now it is still my home as a graduate. I am proud to be at Sac State because of the environment that makes me feel wanted and acknowledged.

Overall Experience: Sac state works closely with the state offices and is near many different health care providers.

4 College Junior

Athletics: I'm not into athletics but I hear the teams rank well. We have an Olympic level track and a premium gym.

4 College Junior

Overall Experience: Sac state is a very welcoming campus. 90% of my experience with the teachers was very positive. I was recruited into an MA program by an extremely passionate and wonderful teacher! I wouldn't be getting my masters if we're not for her.

3 College Senior

Diversity: There have been some instances of intolerance, most of the time campus is chill

3 College Senior

Drug Safety: It's there, but no pressure to conform. Policing is minimal.

4 Recent Alumnus

Overall Experience: Awesome campus and beautiful surroundings. The overall environment is friendly and there are many awesome teachers.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: Professors are willing to help, students are social and easy to talk to, class sizes differ. There are a variety of courses offered but as a student I am more focused on my major/career.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: There are always options available for students, students must take the initiative to do something whether it's looking for job opportunities or internships.

3 College Student

Health & Safety: Security on campus is great, considering we have our own police on campus. The trade off is that like most campuses, this campus is open to the public, which makes the campus slightly less safe for students.

3 College Student

Campus Housing: Campus housing is convenient for those people who can't afford to compute or for those who aren't a resident. Overall the housing is pretty average, and the price is somewhat high. The trade off is that you meet new people which leads to friendships and even some connections for future job offers.

3 College Student

Greek Life: Greek life isn't a HUGE part of campus life, but if you want to enjoy some good parties then you should give it a shot.

4 College Student

Athletics: Sports are a big part of campus life. Club sports and intramural a are a big part of the campus life as well because they play a large role in the community and help bond students regardless of their race, gender, or age.

4 College Student

Overall Experience: It's a great school, diverse and filled with people who want to learn and step outside their comfort zones. Professors are willing to help and listen to students as long as students take the extra step to communicate.

4 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: What separates Rosemont from the other schools in the district is its diversity and school spirit. Rosemont wolverines come together to help one another, making it a safe and enjoyable campus for both students and parents.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Quality of most of the courses I have taken have been great. What the school lacks in is professors with high quality. I've gotten a couple of professors who have great information to teach, but the way they teach makes the subject harder, or they do not teach the subjects adequately. One professor I had, was meant to teach a certain subject, but the whole semester, she taught a completely different subject and was not helpful no matter how you approached them or how often you tried to get help.

4 College Sophomore

Health & Safety: Any crime-related instances are always sent out to every student to ensure everyone is aware of potential dangers and are instructed to be careful and be aware, and are also given instructions if any help is needed. Emergency phones and buttons have been placed in many areas around campus are their parking lots/structures to help avoid any types of assaults or emergencies.

3 College Sophomore

Overall Experience: Overall, I've had a good experience at school so far. I didn't have a bad experience necessarily with professors, but my experience with growing and creating connections have been great. I think the #1 thing that separates my school from many other commuter schools, is that it has a beautiful campus. My school is located in a city, yet also has many trees and foliage, making the school look unique. My school especially looks great when it comes to the autumn season - the trees turn gorgeous colors, and the fallen leaves beautifully decorate walkways and paths, making the campus look almost magical.

Overall ExperienceWhat's this?

View student contributors

Most students appreciate Sac State because it's pleasant, but they often wish it had more school spirit. The ones who are satisfied with it usually haven't been to other four-year universities, so they don't have anything major to compare it to from first-hand experience. Those who wish for more excitement usually mention wilder Bay Area campuses. A majority of people that attend Sac State just want a degree so they can get out. They know not to expect the typical college experience that makes for legendary times and awesome memories. Too many of them commute. If Sac State were more of an on-campus school, there would be more student satisfaction socially. If you decide to study here and want campus community, seek clubs or other social organizations as soon as possible. If you're laid-back and don't mind coming to a school where everyone just comes to get a grade and a job, make yourself at home.

Many students would be blown away if they knew how hard their education could be, but a lot of them are fine with Sac State's current academic level. Most assignments are easy, and it's surprising what students worry about. There's a writing test, the Writing Proficiency Exam, that all students must take before advancing to higher-level classes, and it has a fearsome reputation because many of them make a big deal about it. But in reality, it's nothing more than an in-class essay where you offer your opinion on a certain topic—that's all. Although most Sac State students don't think their education is lacking, when they voice concerns, it's obvious that something's missing. If they were used to consistently working harder, that test would be a breeze.
